When officers investigated further, they found the vehicle was stolen and placed him and his passenger, Ramel Scott, under arrest.

Scott works for the Department of Education.

Horton was charged with grand larceny auto, unauthorized use of a vehicle, possession of forged instruments and criminal possession of stolen property.

Even with the serious crimes hanging over his head, the cops still charged him with a stop or stand violation for double parking.
